10 Recalled Products To Be Aware Of in October 2018

Consumers purchase products with the expectation that they are safe. When that doesn’t happen and a person is injured, they have the right to be compensated for their financial losses. If you or a loved one has been injured by a malfunctioning product, our Miami defective product attorneys are here for you.

Knowing that a product has been recalled can save you from injury. When you are made aware of a recall, you can take the appropriate steps to remedying the issue. Here is a list of products that have made the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) list for October.

1. Topical Anesthetic

UberScientific has recalled its topical anesthetic cream because the packaging is not child resistant. This is required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act. The cream contains lidocaine which can be poisonous if ingested by young children or if they put it on their skin.

Anyone who has purchased the cream should immediately make sure it is out of the reach of any children in the home. UberScientific is offering a free replacement or refund. If you purchased the cream, you will be sent a free child-resistant cap. If you purchased the spray, the company is offering a cream with the child-resistant cap or a refund. Visit UberScientific’s website for more information.

2. Cooler/Grills

AAA Innovations is recalling the approximately 275 cooler/grill combinations that are out there. There is a wooden cabinet that surrounds the grill, which may catch on fire.

If you have one of these grills, contact the company to receive either a full refund or a $125 incentive. You can call (800) 426-7446 for more information.

3. Camp Ax

Walmart is recalling approximately 246,000 camp axes. The head of the ax may detach from the handle, which poses the risk of injury to the user.

If you have purchased a camp ax from the popular chain store, call (800) 925-6278 for information about a refund.

4. Golf Cars, Personal Transportation and Specialty Vehicles

Yamaha has issued a recall of several vehicles in its line. The accelerator pedal has a spring that may break, which then puts the people inside at risk of a crash.

Consumers are being asked to stop using their vehicles and contact their local Yamaha golf car dealership to schedule a repair. All registered owners are being contacted by the company, but you can also call (866) 747-4027 for more information.

5. Playground Climbers

Playsets have come a long way, with the addition of rock walls and other activities. BCI Burke has recalled its metal playground climbers because the handgrips at the top may be too large. A child can become lodged in the opening, which poses the risk of strangulation.

There were approximately 200 units sold, and the company is offering a free repair kit to anyone who purchased a kit. Call (800) 356-2070 for more information.

6. Decorative Pineapple

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store has recalled a decorative pineapple because the metal leaves atop the decoration are too sharp. They pose a laceration hazard to anyone who handles the item.

Consumers are being asked to return their pineapples to any Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® for a full refund of their purchase price. Consumers can also visit Cracker Barrel’s website for more information.

7. Ski Bindings

Marker has recalled its Kingpin ski bindings because the steel pins in the toe unit stand the risk of breaking. This could cause the skier to fall and sustain injury. Stop using the bindings immediately if you have purchased them and return them to an authorized dealer.

You will be given a replacement toe unit at no cost. Be sure to take your boots along so the bindings can be adjusted appropriately. E-mail [email protected] for more information.

8. Mountain Bikes

Canyon has recalled approximately 820 mountain bikes. The chainstay may crack, causing a host of issues, not the least of which is a loss of control. The rider may experience a crash and subsequent injury.

Canyon is offering consumers a free replacement of their chainstay along with installation. Those people who are known to have purchased a mountain bike are being contacted directly. You can email [email protected] to see if your bike is part of the recall.

9. Fuel Tank Replacement Caps

Briggs & Stratton is recalling fuel tank replacement caps because they don’t have ventilation holes. This can allow pressure to build up in the tank, which poses the risk of a fire. Stop using your portable generator and take the fuel tank replacement cap to your local Briggs & Stratton dealer for a replacement.

There will be no cost. Call (800) 227-3798 for more information.

10. Backless Yoga Chairs

Spiraledge is recalling backless yoga chairs because they have been known to break. This poses the risk of a fall and injury. If you have one of these chairs, stop using it and contact the company.

You will receive a gift card in the amount of your purchase price. You can call (800) 299-8705 or visit Swim Outlet’s website or Yoga Outlet’s website for more information.
